Bite Notes

  • Aru and her Pandava sister Mini are lucky that Mini had a few Oreos stashed in her bag when they were whisked away to fight the Sleeper. Pick up a package or try your hand at making your own with a recipe out of Stella Parks’ cookbook, Bravetart.
  • For a cup of comforting chai like Kamala Khan wishes for after getting her powers from the previous Ms. Marvel, try the Chai Masala Spice Mix and recipe for a cup of tea from Meera Sodha’s book Made in India
  • Bake a marble cake along with the characters in Louisiana’s Way Home. This vegan marble cake uses vinegar and baking soda in place of an egg, a Depression-era trick that results in light, moist cakes.
  • The next time you’re at Disney World, pass up the Mickey-shaped ice cream bars in favor of the Citrus Swirl. It’s the perfect Floridian treat to pair with the Goldie Vance comic book series.
